This is a majestic grass forming a dense bluish mound of leaves. The everlasting heads open purple and turn oat gold and persists for years. It has deep roots and can grow up to 1.5 mtrs(4ft). The main problem I have with it is that the flower stems snap easily and therefore I tie them up together with some string.
